Heavy rains over the Minnesota' weekend have again deluged S economy and rural communities the area, halting most farm- ing operations. Rainfall so far this month has nearly totaled the entire amount which nor- mally falls during August.

By Bev Durgan, Dean, U of MN Extension Agriculture keeps advanc- ing, adapting new technol- ogy to meet the needs of an increasingly global economy. Challenges have intensified as well--a lengthy drought, heavy precipitation and uncertain farm policies, to mention a few. The University of Minnesota started the Farm Family of the Year program 33 years ago to recognize successful farm families for their impact on our econo- my and rural communities. This year, families from 76 Minnesota counties will be recognized for their contri- butions to agriculture, the economy and rural communi- ties at an Aug. 8 ceremony at Farmfest, the state's largest farm gathering. I salute those selected as 2013 University of Minnesota farm families because they represent the ideals shared by all farm families. Minnesota farm families not only persist and endure, but they con- tinually improve the way they manage the land and produce food for the world. Farm fam- ilies keep pace with change and innovate, while juggling busy lives and unexpected challenges. Unquestionably, farm fam- ilies care about the land. As stewards of the land, they know they need to maintain it for future generations, just as they know that their land produces food and energy that must serve a doubling population by 2050. Farmers contribute in ways that matter to the entire state, providing more than 340,000 jobs and $75 billion in economic activity. They also contribute their time and skills to solve commu- nity problems, and keep their schools, businesses and youth organizations strong. Many volunteer for 4-H and other groups, and donate gener- ously to these efforts. Each year, University of Minnesota Extension works directly with farm families to understand and address the challenges of fanning. I would like to thank all the families who welcome University faculty onto their farms and share their knowl- edge and experience with us. Farm families make incal- culable contributions to the science of agriculture. We are honored to know them, and to work together to improve our food and energy system.

A: We did have some pond kills because the oxygen lev- els got too low in ponds that had reduced water levels and shallower depths. There were a few winter kills of turtles as a result of low water levels, deep frost, and low oxygen going into winter. Severe drought concentrates popula- tions of both turtles and frogs, which can lead to increased disease transmis- sion and stressed animals. It's possible that there was some mortality as well as increased predation due to concentrat- ed animals. This year, turtles and frogs are on the move, away from areas where there is exces- sive water. There's also a delay in nesting for turtles due to cooler water and air temps. We suspect there's some impact to timber rattle- snake dens in a few areas from severe floods that occurred in past years during the summer. With recent heavy rain and severe flood- ing in areas of southeastern Minnesota at a time when more snakes are in stream corridors, we may see impacts to some dens. -Jaime Edwards, Nongame wildlife program • SentinelTribune Tip Line • If you see news happening or have • a story idea call our News Tip • • Line. • • 274-6136 or • • 1-800-410-1859 • Due to staff limitations we may not • always be able to respond to your tips or • • ideas.
